Wampum belts

Today we learned that the Iroquois made beautiful belts from purple and white wampum shells.  They used the belts to tell stories.  Now, our wampum looks a lot more like purple and white pony beads, but you get the idea!  This was serious business in our class today as the children had to count out their beads in stacks of 10 to make 100 before they could start beading!
